Bourassa is a former provincial electoral district in Quebec, Canada.

It included part of the city and later borough of Montréal-Nord.

It was created for the 1966 election from part of Bourget electoral district. Its last election was in 1998. It disappeared in the 2003 election. Its successor electoral districts were Bourassa-Sauvé (formed by merging part of Bourassa with all of Sauvé electoral district) and Crémazie.

It was named after nationalist politician Henri Bourassa, who was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Quebec from 1907 to 1912 and also served in the Canadian House of Commons.
